Naturopathic Medicine

Naturopathic Philosophy

Naturopathic medicine differs from conventional medicine in its philosophy and approach to disease.

There are 6 principles that guide the philosophy of naturopathic medicine.

  1. Do no harm

  2. Treat the cause of disease

  3. Treat the whole person

  4. Healing power of nature

  5. Doctor as teacher

  6. Prevention

By determining the underlying cause of disease and supporting the whole person including physical, mental, and emotional aspects, naturopathic medicine is well suited for addressing chronic illnesses that continue to become evermore prevalent. This approach complements the care that medical doctors provide allowing for an integrative approach to health care that best fulfills patient needs.
